From the c120/140 site. Probably best describes the PPrun forum -


How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?


1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.


14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.


7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.


1 to propose a new Lighting section.


2 to argue that an Electricals section would be much more useful.


7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.


5 to flame the spell checkers.


3 to correct spelling/grammar in flame posts.


6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid.


2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp."


15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct.


19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum.


11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum.


36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty.


7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs.


4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's.


3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.


13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too."


5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.


4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"


13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs."


1 lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again

True Story. While stuck in Casino with the Drifter for a few days due to weather, my agent rang to say that the light bulb in the bathroom of a small rental investment property I own had blown, and the elderly tenant was unable to change it.


I explained my predicament and said to the agent get someone to change it for her.


The bill to change one light bulb was $120.00. True. (Weekend rate, minimum call out fee, hourly rate or part there of, etc.)
